Higher Than An Eagle

IMG_4879

This week’s photo, taken November 18, 2015 from the Edmonds Pier in Edmonds, WA, features an adult BALD EAGLE cruising by the pier.

Whenever the BALD EAGLES show up at the Edmonds waterfront – and they often do this time of year – the other birds are on high alert. When an eagle approaches the area, all of the gulls take flight. Apparently, they feel that they are too easy a target if they continue to sit on their favorite perch.

Since eagles are famous for soaring to great heights, from my point of view, it’s pretty cool to be positioned higher than an eagle as it flies by.
